Asked Ben (the groom, who was running the music) Hey, you got one Grateful Dead tune in that mix for your old crazy uncles? His answer: No.....Nobody can dance to the Grateful Dead, and nobody wants to watch people who think they can dance to the Grateful Dead. But... show up at the "after party" and we might have something for ya.

Everyone "got" it, and there were plenty of non Dead heads there from both families friends/relatives.
The last song was Ripple, which tuned into a huge sing along with the family sourrounding the bride and groom in a big "dancing circle of love" while they danced in the middle. It was also cool because it was in the same place we got married, at The Edgefield here in Oregon.
Scott Law sat in for the entire show.
From Scotts website: "...He has played Jerry Garcia’s “Wolf” guitar at Grateful Dead bassist, Phil Lesh’s invitation..."
On the other hand, I was once in a band that threw on Blues For Allah at the band house one time while I was not there. When I cam back, they said, "Man, we tried to listen to your tape, we had to turn it off".
With all due respect it was a cassette recorded from the album and I had just finished listening to Music Never, so they heard Crazy Fingers, Sage & Spirit, and I'm pretty sure Blues For Allah drove them over the edge ( I can't listen to that one either).
